  • Description


    We're a brand new hostel in the bustling town of Panajachel, on the shores of the world renowned Lake Atitlan. With a beautiful pool, amazing gardens, a cinema room and so much more. And that's not even mentioning our separate lake-front bar with volcano views and the location of the biggest weekly parties in town. We're looking for enthusiastic volunteers to come join us and help open up the location in the end of December 2018. This is an amazing opportunity to help mold what this amazing location will become!
